The middle school cross country team participated in the Dave Jantzen Invitational on Friday. This was the largest meet the Vikings have participated in so far this year. Dozens of the best private and public schools from all over the Houston area competed in this meet. The Vikings ran well. The 8th grade boys team finished in 3rd place and earned a plaque. Over 125 runners competed in the 8th grade boys division!

The Vikings are showing major signs of improvement. 13 out of the 19 7th and 8th grade runners set a new Personal Record (PR) for their 2 mile event. The 6th graders had their first experience running a 2 mile event. They did a great job with this distance and this will only make them stronger for their district championship distance of 1.5 miles.

The Vikings are back in action this Saturday, as the team competes in the Faith West Hills cross country meet. Come support your Viking runners!
